Memorial Day Flag Placement Thank you for the invitation to join you in placing flags for Memorial Day. It would be an honor, and a nice way to revisit the cemeteries around Waterford. I am helping with placing flags in 3 cemeteries in Chittenden County, and am not confident that I can reasonably commit to another one, though. Best regards -Deb
Pleasant View Cem., Barnet Thank you so much for filling my 2 photo requests for Elmer & Mildred Gates. Such a shame there's no markers for them but at least you got a shot of their plot view. Much appreciated!
Milo Harvey 119823202 inscription I understand your frustration about the abbreviated gravestone inscription. A few months ago, Find A Grave clarified their position on what can be entered in the "Add marker transcription" field. From the FAQ, that field "... is to be used for words, phrases, or sentences that are found on the headstone, other than the person’s name or birth and death dates. Examples of these would be “Loving mother”, “Here my love lies”, Served in Company 212, etc." Like you, I would prefer to enter the full inscription, especially in cases where the photo and/or gravestone are difficult to read. I hope they change the rule in the future. Where possible, I've been moving full transcriptions to the gravestone photo as a caption, but can't do that for Milo because I didn't post the photo. -Deb
